If you're talking about this project https://elinux.org/RPi-Cam-Web-Interface, then I dont think it will work out of the box.
I did not played with this solution yet, but quick look at the code (https://github.com/silvanmelchior/RPi_Cam_Web_Interface) shows that they use raspimjpeg, and I did not find any mention of using original Raspbian raspistill or raspivid (full list of native applications is here in official Raspberry docs).
If solution is based on these "native" modules, you can convert 2D to 3D easily by adding just one parameter. If not - you have to do a lot of hard coding "under the hood".
May I'm wrong with this, and I will be pleased to hear your opinion.

You can not "convert" it.
By defaulf RPi Cam Control capures video only from a single camera. But for 3D you need to capture it from 2 cameras simultaneously. I think the better way is to ask RPi Cam Control developers, if they plan to add 3D video support.
